MEPs approve provisional ‘Invest EU’ jobs & growth programme – Kelly

April 18, 2019

The European Parliament today approved a provisional deal for a multi-billion EU investment programme that promises a big boost in jobs and growth.

MEPs voted overwhelming for the ‘Invest EU’ initiative which is a new EU programme to support investment and access to finance from 2021 to 2027.

The programme aims to be a launchpad for initiatives that would otherwise be difficult to finance. And it’s hoped it will generate almost seven hundred billion euro (€700bn) in investments.

The Fine Gael MEP Sean Kelly says a range of businesses in Ireland could benefit from the fund.   

Out words: Invest EU
